Amy H. Farkas, MD, MS

Assistant Professor


  • General Internal Medicine


I was born in Seattle and grew up between Miami in Kansas City. Eventually I moved to Pittsburgh where I completed all my medical training including my women’s health fellowship and Masters in Medical Education. Along the way I married my husband and had my two children. We moved to Milwaukee in 2018 when we joined the faculty at MCW.

I am clinically based at the VA where I care for our women Veterans as a primary care provider. I also serve as a Senior Consultant for the Office of Women’s Health. My research interest includes clinical women’s health, medical education, and mentorship/women’s leadership. I serve as the co-director for the Women’s Learning Leadership Collaborative with MCW’s Center for the Advancement of Women in Science in Medicine. Additionally, I am faculty with the Kern Institute and co-direct the Kern Institute Collaboration for Scholarship.

I joined the program leadership in 2022 as an APD and am excited to be working more closely with the residency. I run a women in medicine group for our women residents and help to oversee the VA continuity clinic experience.
